In pictures: Nailsea Flower Show

DESPITE the extreme weather conditions experienced recently, Nailsea Flower Show attracted its highest number of entries ever at the weekend.

Held at the Golden Valley playing fields off Nailsea Park on Saturday and Sunday, the event featured numerous classes for horticulturalists and craftspeople to enter.

A total of 154 people entered more than 1,000 pieces including those for photography and wine.

Cyndy Sallnow of Nailsea and District Horticultural Society said: “Considering the weather and the seasons we have had we were extremely pleased with the numbers.

“The displays were really terrific.
